San Francisco Giants Outfielder Placed On Injured List

The San Francisco Giants will be without Austin Slater for the next little bit at least, as the outfielder has been placed on the 10-day injured list.

Slater is currently dealing with a left hand sprain, so a timetable for his return has not been announced by the club. Thus, this trip to the IL is an understandable one. The Giants will be hoping that he will be good to go before the season is over, but that is certainly not a guarantee at the time of this writing.

Slater has had himself a fairly solid year in 2022, so his absence will be noticeable. In 109 games on the year, he has five home runs, 31 RBIs, and a .267 batting average. Here's to hoping that he can improve upon these numbers before the year is out.
